      What pattern did you use for her dress?

      She’s perfect Christine ! I love her dress and her face is lovely. You should definitely make more like this.

        Thanks Dianne, I wasn't too pleased with her hair as I used the small loop mohair instead of the recommended large loop and I think it's a bit lightweight so I've since made her the Tearoom hat which keeps all those wayward curls nice and neat.
        The dress I adapted is from the Tearoom Romeo Bear jumper pattern of hearts and kisses I think I added an extra 3 stitches to the cast on to complete the last heart.
        I'lI definitely be making another soon although I've actually just started a Romeo and Candy I've made a Romeo before but not Candy.

        @Christine R: I think her hair is pretty. I thought the pattern on her dress was familiar, I’ve got the Romeo Bear pattern and it’s on my to do list. I’m not confident yet about adapting patterns yet. I love a lot of the LCR dresses and I’m sure they potentially could be incorporated into the Tearoom dresses. Maybe one day... Look forward to seeing your Candy doll! 🙂
